“Absolutely Fantastic”

We cannot recommend this Villa enough!
We stayed at Baan Tai Tara 1 for 2 weeks Dec/Jan and literally had the time of our lives,
Is is a beautiful Villa with a very tasteful interior
The villa is detached and set in a totally private walled garden with its own entrance and parking area.
Cannot fault anything about this villa everything is just as described but better!! No nasty surprises and the airport pickups were very helpful - Sue was very helpful and showed us round on our arrival.
The local community is fantastic and everything you could possibly need is on the doorstep literally, everyone is so friendly and helpful.
Cannot wait to return again later this year

“High quality accomodation in peaceful location”

Top quality accommodation with high standards of fixtures and fittings. There is lots of light and air and the external grounds are beautiful. Lots of non touristy places to eat within a few minutes walk and a beautiful beach - again off the main tourist areas. That said, action and variety are just a short drive away, ideal.

“A wonderful Getaway!”

We stayed at Baan Tai Tara 1 for 4 days, in the middle of a longer trip, a time to chill out and relax away from the hustle and bustle of many cities and beach areas. Baan Tai Tara 1 fit the bill perfectly. It was quiet, clean, very comfortable and well equipped in terms of living essentials. The pool was just perfect to cool off in after a day relaxing on the beach, a few minutes walk away. We also enjoyed the restaurants found close by. We found it easy to get to and from the ferry dock, just a 10 minute taxi ride. We also rented scooters right next door. Everything seemed easy to get too. Highly recommended and we will certainly return in the future.

“Lived up to expectations.”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Ban Tai Tara villa 1 for 3 weeks,the villa was very clean and modern with all home comforts.We had a few niggles,however these were easily sorted out.The villa is in a very small village,however there are 2 small grocery shops and a good resturant,the villagers are very friendly ,the villa is situated next to another villa and at times the occupants were very noisy.The internet was very slow and unpredictable which made Skype difficult,however,we were lent a dongle which helped.We were grateful for the welcome pack,which was a nice find.We enjoyed relaxing in the pool ,however,the beach is very close for a change and has a lovely shack for lunch and drinks.
We did not hire a car,but used public public transport,which would stop at the top of the road.Recommend going to the Fishermans Village-beware the cocktails are strong !!!!I If you want to get away from the big resorts-Chewang then this is for you.

“Small Piece of Paradise in Koh Samui”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My wife Arlene and I stayed here recently for 12 glorious days in March 2014. Baan Tai Tara 1 is a beautifully maintained, decorated and furnished designer / boutique-type accommodation. All the rooms are spacious, light and airy and face inwards to a landscaped pool area. The property is well-maintained and is private and secluded despite being only a few minutes way from from a lovely beach, places to eat and some small shops. Baan Tai is a quieter, less touristy, area than some on Koh Samui which suited us. Despite our plans to hire a car we just used local taxies and Songtaews which passed frequently up on the main road. We loved it and will likely return.
